Spots for kitesurfing in Conil de la Frontera and Andalusia
Kitesurfen mit Westwind (Poniente)
The western wind Poniente arrives side-onshore and brings 4-6 Bft. depending on the time of the year. Small to medium size waves come with the Poniente providing perfect conditions for beginners and advanced riders.
For Poniente kites between 12 and 16m² are recommendable.
Kite-Spot: Cabo Trafalgar, Caños de Meca
The Caños de Meca spot is a 10min car drive away from Conil, but definitely worth the effort. The bay on the left of the lighthouse of Trafalgar offers perfect kitesurfing conditions.
With western wind the water is absolutely flat on the inside of the bay and further out at the cape is where some clean waves break (especially in the winter time).
|Distance from Conil||12km|
|Best season||all year|
|Services||2 beach bars, breakfast cafes, restaurants|
|Directions||From Conil follow along the coast in direction Caños de Meca -> look out for the lighthouse of Trafalgar|
|Valuation||* * * * *|
The most comfortable solution is to book one of the holiday accommodations right at the spot.
Kitesurfing with east wind (Levante)
While windsurfers love the strong Levante, kitesurfers used to avoid this wind in the early days of the sport.
Mostly, Levante reaches bewteen 6 and 9 Bft. and its direction is side-offshore from the left. Levante demands a very high level of kitesurfing skills.
With small boards and kites of the latest generation Levante can be still a lot of fun and a great challenge.
You should generally keep in mind:
- Levante blows side-offshore (crossing against the wind is a must)
- Levante more gusty than Poniente
- Levante builds up quickly and gets very stong
Kite spot: Conil de la Frontera, Costa de la Luz
In Conil de la Frontera it's only allowed to kitesurf at the left side of the lagoon (past the bridge). Strong Levante in Tarifa will always show 1-2 Bft. less in Conil.
The wind direction is sideshore either way. Waves can be a challenge in the winter time between October and May.
|Distance||1km left of Conil de la Frontera|
|Best season||all year|
|Services||Beach bars about 400m next to kite spot at the beach promenade, Kitesurf school|
|Installations||Showers, public toilets|
|Directions||left of the promenade, look where other people kitesurf|
|Valuation||* * * * *|
